Green Parrot Bar & Bistro

The name Green Parrot Beach Bar was not chosen by accident… This was the name of the old lodge that used to be here, before the van Noord family bought the land. Although Portofino Beach Resort is completely different than the former Green Parrot, we don’t want to forget the history of this piece of paradise.

Our bar has indoor and outdoor seating and our bartenders offer bar service at our pool, on our beach or by the end of the dock.

Our outdoor terrace is home to our Green Parrot Bistro; you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch, tapas or dinner from our a-la-carte Portofino Restaurant menu while enjoying the cool Caribbean Sea breeze and a spectacular view.

Enjoy a nice romantic candle-lit dinner here on our amazing terrace or while viewing an exciting sporting event at our indoor Green Parrot Beach Bar. So many dining options to choose from at your leisure and your convenience.

Our Green Parrot Beach Bar serves tropical cocktails, a wide variety of imported wines, refreshing local or imported drinks, or healthy smoothies, all while you unwind and relax during your vacation. Portofino guests never leave the resort before they have tried our Margarita, considered one of our best signature drinks! Made with fresh ingredients only and our very own secret ingredient it makes for the perfect drink. The Creole Gal, is our second most favorite cocktail, made with four of Belize’s finest rums, freshly squeezed orange and pineapple juice. Our wine directory has been specially created for the best selection of wines to be paired with our freshly cooked delicate dishes, savor these tastes even more and ask our waiters and bartenders for recommendations on what wines to try with each dish. “The Beer of Belize”, named Belikin, is still the most favorite beer amongst our guests. The Belize Brewing Company was established in 1969 and began brewing Belikin Beer and Belikin Stout in 1971. The most popular Portofino Smoothie is the “Tropical Dream”…made with coconut cream, fresh pineapples, and bananas.

Outdoor Terrace Hours

7:00am – 9:00pm
Portofino Bistro & Tapas Menus available from 11:30am – 6:30pm
